Will the Tempassure feature prevent scalding should someone with a disability enter the shower and simply turn the valve to hot hot water only?
Hi Gay, Thank you for your question. TempAssure® Thermostatic valves monitor the temperature of the water and adjust the mix automatically to maintain precise temperature control and to keep the water temperature in your shower within a safe ±3.6° F (±1.7° C). This provides a more consistent temperature than pressure balanced valves can supply.
TempAssure valves also feature an adjustable high-temperature limit stop that when properly set helps ensure the handle cannot be turned to a position that is too hot for comfort. And because TempAssure measures the temperature of water, the handle limit stop will not need to be adjusted for seasonal ground water temperature changes.
Basically when you install the faucet you will set the max hot water temperature by adjusting the rotational limit stop to a safe/non scalding water temperature. The valve will not allow the temperature to exceed this limit.

Does this shower head pivot at all or is the water flow straight down only?
Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the shower head of the Delta Cassidy TempAssure Shower T17T297-PN does tilts up, down, right and left, when installed.

Which parts are plastic?
I have seen several complaints in reviews about this trim kit being plastic, and the above reply to a question regarding this issue said parts of it are metallic and parts are plastic. I would like details about which parts of the exterior, on the showerhead and on the faucet control, are plastic, please.
Thank you for your question. All of the external parts are metallic, except for the shower head.

Matching hand shower?
I require a traditional, champagne bronze wall-mount hand shower to pair with this trim kit. For my adjacent roman tub, I will be using T4795-CZLHP H695CZ which does have a traditional deck-mount hand shower. Can that hand shower also be purchased a la carte and wall mounted so that my hand showers will match? If not, what options does Delta offer to complete this plumbing suite? Thank you.
Thank you for your question! The matching wall mount hand shower for the Cassidy collection in Champagne Bronze is the model 55433-CZ.
